AWKR 2019 – Videos, Photos & Results

Firstly, a big congratulations to all involved in this mighty regatta. The AWKR was a huge success. You all should be so proud of yourselves. The feedback from competitors has been warm and positive. One group advised this morning they booked accommodation for 2020 already as they loved their 1st AWKR experience so much.

Kristen Buckland (AWKR Chair) & Allicia Rae (Sailing Coordinator) – you two were absolute superstars along with all the race management team & volunteers, AWKR committee members, club and  reciprocal club volunteers, and all supporting members, staff and individuals who contributed their time, boats and resources. Another big shout out to all the event sponsors. Thank you & well done!

Great video footage and photos were captured by many people over the course of the 3 days. For more content go to the official AWKR pages AWKR website, facebook page or Instagram Page
